By Ben McAleer

  • Carlos Kameni

    Carlos Kameni Top of the Match

    Did exceptionally well to ensure that Anderlecht only scored twice. Denied both Mbokani and Jovanovic on numerous occasions, but could do little to deny the latter for his effort five minutes into the second half.

  • Weligton

    Weligton

    Solid performance in defence, but shoud've scored in the first half with the scores still at 0-0. Substituted in the second half.

  • Eliseu

    3.50

    Eliseu

    A constant threat down the left and could've easily had two assists tonight. Did well to pick out Iturra and Santa Cruz either side of half-time, only for neither team-mate to hit the target.

  • Sergio Sánchez
    8

    3.50

    Sergio Sánchez

    Linked up well with Seba on the right, but was defensively suspect. Took a fine Kameni save in the second half to deny Anderlecht after Jovanovic saw his effort tipped onto the post.

  • Oguchi Onyewu
    10
    4
    3.00

    Oguchi Onyewu

    Struggled with the threat of Jovanovic and Mbokani. Was at fault for the former's opener, having been pressured by the latter. Could have had an assist early on.

  • Jérémy Toulalan
    9
    0
    3.00

    Jérémy Toulalan

    Substituted after 15 minutes with a hamstring problem. No time to make an impact.

  • Manuel Iturra
    11
    0
    3.00

    Manuel Iturra

    Impressive in the middle of the park and could've opened the scoring early on. Kept things simple and ensured that Biglia's impact was kept to a minimum.

  • Duda
    19
    0
    4.00

    Duda

    A memorable evening for the Malaga captain, whose brace ensured the hosts remained unbeaten in their debut Champions League group stage campaign. Came close to a third from a free kick, but was substituted to a standing ovation in the 80th minute.

  • Diego Buonanotte
    15
    0
    3.50

    Diego Buonanotte

    Was always a menace to the Anderlecht and could've easily netted twice, only to be denied by Proto. Helped himself to an assist for Duda's second was a superb cross-field pass.

  • Sebastián Fernández Miglierina
    10
    1
    3.50

    Sebastián Fernández Miglierina

    Did well on the right, especially for the opener. Drifted through the Anderlecht 18-yard box, holding up brilliantly, before teeing up Duda for the opener.

  • Roque Santa Cruz

    Roque Santa Cruz Flop of the Match

    Somewhat anonymous throughout the encounter, bar his effort that struck the post.

Substitutions

  • Jesús Gámez
    5

    3.00

    Jesús Gámez

    Bullied by Mbokani after coming on and wasn't an adequate stand-in for Weligton.

  • Camacho
    6
    1
    3.00

    Camacho

    Early substitution for Toulalan. Partnered Iturra well in the middle of the park and put in a solid shift on the evening.

  • Portillo
    7
    1
    3.00

    Portillo

    Came on with 10 minutes to play. Not enough time to make an impact

  • Silvio Proto
    2
    1
    3.00

    Silvio Proto

    Would have been a rout had he not been in goal. Did well to deny Buonanotte twice, and Duda his hat-trick. Could do little for the latter's double.

  • Olivier Deschacht
    1
    3
    3.00

    Olivier Deschacht

    Dealt with Santa Cruz with minimal ease, apart from the Malaga striker's effort which hit the post. Could do nothing to stop the goals.

  • Cheikhou Kouyaté
    4
    2
    3.00

    Cheikhou Kouyaté

    Like Deschacht, not to blame for the goals, and did well to stifle Santa Cruz, limiting his impact on the game.

  • Behrang Safari

    2
    3.50

    Behrang Safari

    Was unfortunate not to have helped himself to a goal after seeing his disallowed for an offside against Jovanovic. Did well against Seba on the right.

  • Lucas Biglia
    2
    5
    3.00

    Lucas Biglia

    Struggled with Buonanotte in the middle of the park, conceding a free kick on the diminutive schemer in the second-half which almost led to a goal. However, he worked tirelessly and passed the ball well.

  • Sacha Kljestan
    4
    1
    3.00

    Sacha Kljestan

    Like Biglia, struggled with Buonanotte and his constant weaving through the midfield. Never stopped running, though. Booked in the first half for a foul on the Argentine.

  • Dennis Praet
    3
    1
    3.00

    Dennis Praet

    Quiet evening for the playmaker, who had been expected to provide the ammo for Mbokani. Stifled by Iturra and Camacho but showed occasional flashes of what he could do.

  • Guillaume Gillet
    1
    1
    3.50

    Guillaume Gillet

    Repeatedly exposed on numerous occasions and it was no shock to see Duda take advantage with his double. However, he was one of Anderlecht's better players going forward.

  • Milan Jovanović
    12
    2
    4.00

    Milan Jovanović

    Scored a delightful dink early in the second half and could easily have had a hat-trick and an assist had it not been for the exploits of Kameni in the Malaga net.

  • Mbokani
    12
    1
    4.00

    Mbokani

    Netted a last minute equaliser and would have snatched all three points had it not been for Kameni. Led the front-line well, forcing Onyewu into a mistake that led to Jovanovic's opener.

  • Massimo Bruno
    2
    1
    3.50

    Massimo Bruno

    Impressive showing for the youngster, who looked to push forward and support the strikers. Came close to netting, only to be denied by Kameni.

Substitutions

  • R. Vargas
    2
    2
    3.50

    R. Vargas

    Came on with five minutes to go. No time to make an impact.

  • Tom de Sutter

    3.00

    Tom de Sutter

    Replaced Praet in the second half, but was unable to get a foothold on the game to provide the creative spark behind Mbokani.
